Previous: Goodness-of-Fit Tests
So far, we have discussed how to run simulation, how to generate and
test random number generators, how to build input data models. This
chapter discusses how one might verify and validate a simulation model.
The gola of validation process
- to produce a model that represents true system behavior close enough
for the model to be used as a substitute for the physical system
- to increase to an accetable level of credibility of the model
The verification and validation process consists of the following components.
- Verification is concerned with building the model right.
- Validation is concerned with building the right model.
